Transition Compass, LLC
Get That Next Job’s (GTNJ) primary purpose is to prepare our candidates to be just that: candidates, not merely resumes.
“Today is your first Tomorrow!”
We are committed to a resume-less transition sales/ marketing method.
If you only look at what is, you might never attain what could be! Anonymous
Our process, the Personal Marketing Strategy Program (PMSP©) and our Method: has five basic underlying principles:
1. To help transit the Candidate from being a paper candidate to being a person. People notice, interview and hire people with provable performance, not just paper.
2. To reduce the risk of hire and increase the “reward of hire” for the company, as well, as the candidate.
3. To provide a step-by-step marketing program to prepare and present the candidate’s credentials, close and ask for the job.
4. The reality that “tasks are normally dismissed, but measurable accomplishments are always recognized.”
5. All candidates in “Transition” are engaged in a sales process. The candidate is always the product.

Tomorrow’s job is not an illusion! If it is your goal; we can help!
Our get THAT NEXT job!” method is a very aggressive candidate advocacy program.
Our job is to enable you to get noticed, get interviewed and get that next job in the shortest time possible.
Historically, over the past 30 years, PMSP products have had a broad appeal. We have had via our website, webinars, and seminars a significant impact on five distinct audiences.
Our site can be used as a stand-alone product, no coaching for other than level one.
1. This program was written with the Experienced Candidates in mind: The PMSP will help them develop a series of marketing products about themselves to present to the senior staff of any company. “People hire people—not paper.”
2. All other Younger/less experienced candidates: Can use this tool to help them develop their story (paper and interview) to present to any hiring authority.
3. Candidates with great work experience and limited education: The PMSP tool enables them to express their dreams, goals, and aspirations, based on who they were, are and will be—not who they should be to fill a job description. The narrative/story portion helps them to see who and what they are—and why they have value.
4. Recent Graduate Degree candidates: The PMSP allows them to develop their story based on real accomplishments, to illustrate their potentials.
5. People re-entering the workforce: The PMSP helps to reorder the way they think about accomplishments, competencies, and potentials (ACP). It also helps them to refine their story of who they are, what they can do and how they can benefit any company as an employee.
Today is your first tomorrow!

Robert Sandt, Former Client/Partner
We are sorry to announce that Bob Sandt has left (GTNJ), originally as an executive vice president and principal transition coach.
Bob has been able to find a job using our sytem that fits his exact needs and role. He has over 30 years of experience in the management of both large and small enterprises and therefore brings a unique perspective and expertise with respect to finding a new job and career development. As a former client of GTNJ, he found the process so compelling and consistent with his career experience that he decided to invest in taking GTNJ national through this new enhanced and fully functional Web presence.
Through Bob’s ability to identify the right talent, he has been able to successfully guide complex technology development programs, initiates new product launches and commercialize advanced technologies across multiple applications. His hands-on leadership style and forward-focused vision consistently delivered superior products and customer service experiences, whether executing component level repair support, production, manufacturing or assembly operations, or logistics and supply-chain management of sophisticated systems. Formulating strategies and executing capture efforts for multi-million-dollar programs while turning around failing operations has become emblematic of his ability to recognize talent and build strong, effective management teams.
Bob is a successful business leader with many years of engineering and business experience, having been CEO of Ahtna, Inc., the 20th-largest corporation in Alaska; Lockheed Martin Corporation’s Missile Systems Division, as the Vice President of Business Development; Magnum Power Systems, Ltd., as Vice President of Marketing and Product Development; and as President/CEO of Diversified Defense Industries. He graduated from the University of Cincinnati with a bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering, and he also holds a master’s degree in industrial management from the Georgia Institute of Technology. He attended the Executive Development Program at Emory University and the Senior Executive Development Program at Cornell University.
We are very sorry to see him go, but he does remain on the board of directors and will still attend seminars and other events time permitted.
The PMSP© system helps to ensure three things in any candidate’s transition mode: That the candidate will be prepared for transition; that by knowing who they are, they will able to get noticed in today’s marketplace; and they will be comfortable explaining and demonstrating how they will increase the “reward of hire” and reduce “risk of hire” for any hiring authority.
We are currerntly looking for new coaching staff in the US and Canada.
